David Gordon Green isn't fucking around. A new trailer for his upcoming medieval stoner comedy "Your Highness" has arrived and while it's just as funny (though not as raunchy) as the red-band spot that hit last month, it definitely gives us a look at more of the whizz-bang digital effects that look very good, especially for a not-so-serious quest picture.

David Gordon Green isn't fucking around. A new trailer for his upcoming medieval stoner comedy "Your Highness" has arrived and while it's just as funny (though not as raunchy) as the red-band spot that hit last month, it definitely gives us a look at more of the whizz-bang digital effects that look very good, especially for a not-so-serious quest picture.

The film sets up a pretty simple premise: When Prince Fabious’ (James Franco) bride (Zooey Deschanel) is kidnapped by an evil wizard, he sets out on a quest to rescue her… accompanied by his lazy, useless brother Thadeous. Of course this is all set in medieval times, and Thadeous is played by Danny McBride, whose character has to kick a pot habit along the way. Natalie Portman is a sexy ass-kicking maiden who joins them on their journey where they encounter magic and monsters. We love that the cast is going whole hog with very stuffy accents while spouting the most ridiculous lines ever, and we're gearing up a hugely fun time at the movies. And we won't have to wait long.

"Your Highness" is slated to hit theaters on April 8, 2011. Check out the official synopsis and trailer below (or watch it in HD at Apple).

Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Danny McBride and James Franco team up for an epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world--Your Highness. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancee before their kingdom is destroyed.
